We love hosting events at Starline Social Club!
Housed in a historic three story Victorian building in Uptown Oakland, the Starline Social Club is a bar, restaurant and performance venue. Our unique and historical building is one-of-a-kind, a true Oakland treasure. We have a versatile space, three separate venues available for private rentals, and provide in-house food and bar service, audiovisual service, and production and styling options.

The second story ballroom features an original sprung wood floor (a hallmark of many dance halls built in the late 19th century), north-west facing windows, original built in booth seating for 30, a stage, a balcony, a bar, 25 ft. ceilings with an attic above, and a green room on the third floor. White walls with black trim, wood accents, milk glass pendant light fixtures, and the elegant, simple details speak of an earlier time, while acting as a blank canvas for renters, wedding parties and stylists to transform the space for any occasion. Sunset light streams through the large windows, and dim lights with plenty of candles makes for the perfect lighting once the sun goes down.
Standing capacity 400
Banquet seating 80-100 (w/ space for dance floor)
Banquet seating 130-150 (w/o space for dance floor)

The cavernous bar downstairs features the original pressed tin ceiling and plaster walls, and the newer additions of a curved asymmetrical wood bar, booth seating, and a plethora of palms, ferns and cacti. With sun set light beaming in, the space transports guests to another time and place, yet at its heart is characteristic of Oakland and the artists that dreamed up the renovation of this 1893 Oakland treasure. Relics hang on the wall from the years when this space was an Odd Fellows Hall; bartenders blast eclectic music that spans the last 100 years.
Although our restaurant and bar are normally open to the public from 5pm-2am daily, we do offer buy out options. You can rent this space for a private party any week or weekend evening until 8pm. Rentals after 8pm are considered all-night buy outs.

Explorers Club is our still-kind-of-secret “back room” located next to the Social Club (our bar and restaurant) on street level. It’s accessible only though the bar, speakeasy style. Black ceilings, a large crystal chandelier, dim romantic lighting, and plaster walls – this room is equipped with a professional sound system, its own bar, and a piano. No windows to the outside world- transport yourself. Pretend its dark outside at 7pm in July. This is your space to do with what you want.
Standing capacity without furniture: 80
